I am so excited!
I'm going to see the OV of the Star Trek
movie on Tuesday - with the boys!
D., T., R. (S.'s visiting boyfriend), and myself will endulge in the very geeky pleasure of watching this spectacular movie again (only T. hasn't seen it yet). At first, I thought I'd use this movie to spend a Resa-only evening, but this is so much better. ♥
I will write a term paper on Star Trek
and Raumpatrouille Orion
I'm not sure about the exact topic yet, but I'll write this paper in a seminar about geopolitics, so it will pay close attention to the outer space as a sematic room/place/field/Idon't knowwhat'sitcalledinEnglish. I also like to do a little genre work on scifi first, work on the different nationalities, races and gender issues and, I don't know, do a little emotional studies? I don't know if there is even a name for it, but I did a seminar on emotions/emotional display in literature last semester and it would be great if I could use this knowledge, too. With this, I could even compare The Original Series
to the new movie and look if something in the depiction of the Vulcans ("Vulkanesen"?) has changed over the decades. I so love to "read" or "watch" fantasy and science fiction as complex metaphors for human behaviour and I would probably be in a state of academic bliss writing a term paper in which I could include my personal world view on books and stories. That's why I'm studying literature after all!
Big plans, big plans. Yes, it's propably a bit too much for just one paper, but I have to do my final examinations sometime in the next two years and I still need topics to be tested on. ;-)
And because I'm still in a laughing fit over these two looking so very dorky, look at them, and have a good laugh, too. Zachary Quinto's sense of fashion is as questionable as ever, but that has become a part of his charme for me. And his glasses make me laugh so hard, especially when he grins like in the second picture. Enjoy!
(And tell me about your mental subtitles for this picture, please. "Not ready yet for holding hands in front of the camera", maybe?)
